â€œThis evening they had supped on oxtail soup, summer greens tossed with pecans, grapes, red fennel, and crumbled cheese, hot crab pie, spiced squash, and quails drowned in butter. Lord Janos allowed that he had never eaten half so well.â€ (II: 91) Photo c/o Inn at the Crossroads
I have a new favorite food blog and it has everything to do with its theme. Inn at the Crossroads is run by two women, Sarian and Chelsea. And like me, they’re huge fans of the Song of Fire and Ice series by George R. R. Martin. If you haven’t heard of this yet, it is hands down an epic series which you must absolutely read before you expire. It’s so good, the first book, A Game of Thrones has been turned into an HBO series.
Sarian and Chelsea usually follow a formula with their posts — making both a Westeros and modern version of their dishes followed by a commentary on each dish — similarities and differences in preparation and plating. Their blog is truly a work of art.
